How do I fix an unexpected redirection to the wrong site?

  • When I try to visit Intellicast in Opera, but not other browsers, it redirects to Wunderground. Can anyone tell me what's going on and how to fix it? Many thanks.

  • Hi, the same happens to me when using Safari - in any case Opera's not doing anything special here 🙂

  • @avl Depends on what you consider special. Someone who isn't me has tampered with my browser. (Yours, too.) That's special enough by my standard. I want to fix it and make sure it never happens again. If I can't do that, I will get rid of Opera and think seriously before downloading it again and starting over.

    The same thing once happened in Internet Explorer. Microsoft's product support people provided a solution immediately (except for the hold waiting for a human to become available.) Unfortunately, that was something like twenty years ago, when one could still hope for effective product support, and I have no idea what it was or whether it would apply to Opera now.

  • I guess that when avl meant was that the problem is not caused by Opera but probably by the site itself.

  • @potipharbreen Opera is not doing anything here, it's Intellicast who have decided to redirect you to Wunderground. If you want this to change, you'd have to contact Intellicast - but from what I can find on the internet it looks like a conscious decision from their common owner, The Weather Channel, to merge Intellicast and Wunderground.
